OpenMFG: PostgreSQL-backed ERP for small manufacturers

OpenMFG: PostgreSQL-backed ERP for small manufacturers

Post by Ned Lill » Thu, 24 Oct 2002 03:28:27



Greetings,

Just a quick note to let everyone here know of a new product that ought to =
further the acceptance of PostgreSQL as a serious mission-critical business=
 database.  We announced the launch today of a new product called OpenMFG -=
 a sophisticated ERP system for small manufacturers that runs on PostgreSQL.

It's built with the Qt framework for C++ (400,000 lines) and also makes ext=
ensive use of PL/PGSQL for the ERP business logic.  Qt gives us the ability=
 to run the client on Windows, Linux, any other Unix, even OS X.  We can ru=
n multiplatform on the server side as well, although we're currently happie=
st on Linux; when the native PostgreSQL for Windows port is done in 7.4, we=
'll support that fully as well.

Part of the Qt client work we've done is a fully cross-platform report writ=
er and rendering engine, which stores the report definitions in PostgreSQL =
in XML format.

If there are any manufacturing/ERP types on this list, and you'd like to ta=
lk, please give me a shout; we're doing some pretty interesting stuff - inc=
luding making source code available to our partners and customers.

More info on the software and the company is at www.openmfg.com.  There's a=
 press release at http://lwn.net/Articles/13366/.

Regards,
Ned

1. ERP Applications on Postgresql -- ERPTool

Hi Everyone,
Just wanted to let you all know that I have been
working on development of financial applications
using,java, javascript, javabeans and of course
PostgreSQL database for past one year. I was out of
touch with the community for this time and it kinda
feels like as if I am coming out trenches. I heard and
read interviews by Geoff Davidson and Bruce Momijam.
In Geoff Davidson's interview there is talk about need
of Applications like Oracle or many other commercial
vendors have.
Well I cannot say that my Application , which I fondly
call ERPTool , can fill the need but ,it definitly can
provide a very good starting point.

Right now the modules it has are,
Order Entry,
Purchasing,
Receivables,
Payables,
GL (Basic)
Inventory (Very Basic)
There are three main points that set it apart from the
commercial applications.
1.It is built using mostly free/open source software.
2.It is highly and very rapidly customizable.
3.It needs nothing more than a browser on client side
to function.
While it serves all the basic needs for a small
company
it can very rapidly expanded by adding new forms and
functionality to suit the needs of an enterprise of
any size. I would like to colloborate with postgresql
and other open source communities to make one of the
most versetile and dependable product using open
source code.
Please let me know if this can be done.

Regards
Amandeep Singh
